"So if people ever look down upon you for crying for fictional characters, you should give them a gentle, pitying look and feel bad for them. If they’ve never cried for a fictional character, then they’ve never loved one (and what a joy that is). If they’ve never cried at a book, a movie, a piece of music, then they’ve missed one of the great pleasures life has to offer. Just because fiction does not contain things that are real doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain truth, and we find it through the alchemy of our tears."
Cassandra Clare (via booksandhotchocolate)

"Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches."

"She thought she was independent and strong, but she got one small taste of love and she was hungrier than anyone. She was ravenous."
Ann Brashares, Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood (via larmoyante)
"I think too much. I think ahead. I think behind. I think sideways. I think it all. If it exists, I’ve fucking thought of it."
Winona Ryder (via arpeggia)
"‘You disappear so completely into your head sometimes,’ he said. ‘I wish I could follow you.’"
Cassandra Clare (via brokenpromisesanddbrokenhearts)
"I only know that I focus on words. The languish of language. I like words. They tell a story but tell it slant. We name things and then call that reality. How weird.
